Jordan vs India
Date: Saturday, 17 September 2018
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: King Abdullah II Stadium (Amman).
Jordan hosts the recently-improving Asian side India, at the King Abdullah II Stadium in this friendly international. After their match against Croatia, the finalists of World Cup 2018, it might seem a demotion to Jordan to take on India in their next match, but the South Asian side is a growing superpower in football.
With enough chances and ample opportunities, the time is not far when India could be challenging for the top spots in the Asian Football tier.
In their last match, Jordan really did threaten Croatia with some subtle but superb performances. The final scoreline read 2-1 in favor of the World Cup runner-ups. Mitrovic and Vida got on the scoresheet for Croatia, while in the 73rd minute Faisal pulled back one for the visitors.
The game really took a turn on its head once Jordan had scored. Croatia had to use all of their experience in world football at hand, to not concede the equalizer. Smelling blood, Jordan did shift the gear and tried with all they had to secure a draw. But after a thrilling 17 minutes, they had to settle for a loss.
India faced China on the road in their last match. The visitors had lined up under the captaincy of their influential center-back Sandesh Jhingan. With the likes of Sunil Chhetri at the front, India did put on an impressive display.
But the Asian superpowers, China, at their home, held on and saw out the match. The whole ninety minutes remained goalless. Nevertheless, Indian fans took a lot of positives back from this game.

Jordan vs India Prediction
Despite their recent impressive performances, Jordan is really something that India can’t handle right now. India is just in their growing phase in international football, while Jordan is considered veterans.
Just to bring things to perspective, Jordan’s last opponent was the World Cup Finalists, Croatia. And Jordan almost performed an upset in the match. Croatia was lucky to scrape away a win.

On the other hand, India has been struggling away from home in their last few matchdays. India is winless in their last two overall attempts and is on a run of three away games without a win. In their last 18 matchups on foreign soil, India remained winless in 12.
Jordan will win this match and see out both the halves.
Only one or none of the teams scored in India’s last ten away games. With Jordan’s vast experience and able backline, they will keep a clean sheet in this match.
